The Law Offices of Blaine Barrilleaux selects Miah Walton as their Spring 2020 Scholarship Recipient
LAFAYETTE, LA, May 26, 2020 /Neptune100/ — The Law Offices of Blaine Barrilleaux, a personal injury law firm based in Lafayette, LA, offers a $500 scholarship each semester to a student in their senior year at high school. This semester’s winner is Miah Walton, a student from Patterson High School. Miah will attend Nicholls State University in the fall and has plans to focus on math and science. Miah will put the bulk of the scholarship check towards her work-study fund, books, and other college-related costs.
To win the scholarship, Miah submitted an essay to the program team that impressed them deeply. Blaine Barrilleaux, Managing Attorney, said, “We always get a high number of very good submissions where we are blown away by the accomplishments of the students. This time around, it was Miah’s submission that really stood out; she wrote an essay that came from the heart about her family’s attitude toward education and the preparation that she has undertaken to adequately prepare for her future.”
Miah wants to pursue a Graphic Arts program at college which she hopes will lead to a career in web or graphic design, and working with large companies on their brands, logos, and marketing programs. Miah says, “I’m happier than I can say about this scholarship check. It’s great to win something, for sure, but the money will really help towards my college expenses. It’s a big weight off our shoulders and I am so appreciative.”
When Blaine Barrilleaux established his law offices in his birth town of Lafayette, LA in 2002, he did it with the firm intention of supporting his community, as well as practicing law. He’s an active donor of six local charities including two schools and three school athletic programs. “It’s important to me that we support the next generations coming through. A lot of families find the costs of a college education onerous, and I think it’s heartbreaking that some young people are unable to access the next level of education. Our scholarship program is all about helping capable youngsters local to Lafayette and the surrounding towns make the best for themselves and their future. I am truly delighted to award this semester’s scholarship check to Miah and wish her all the very best in the future.”
